[Paris, n.d., c.1850.]
Hand coloured lithograph, image 245 x 185mm. 9¾ x 7¼". Chipped lower right margin.
A political satire published during the French Second Republic (1848-1852). General Nicolas Anne Theodule Changarnier (1793 1877), brandishing a wooden club with metal spikes, stands on top of a prostrate female figure with red cap of liberty, representing the first Republic of 1793. Changarnier was commander of the National Guard of Paris and exercised great influence in the complicated politics of the period, upholding the power of President Louis Napoleon. In January 1851 however he opposed Louis Napoleon's policy, was in consequence deprived of his command, and at the coup d'état in December was arrested and sent to Mazas, until his banishment from France by the decree of January 9, 1852. Politicians Lagrange, Proudhon et Pierre Leroux, weekly disguised in various ethnic costumes, look on lower left. Plate 3 from the 'Allegorie' series.
